Y. THE ELCHANET '62 THE SALUTATION OF THE DAWN Listen to the Exhortation of the Dawn! Look to this Day! For it is Life, the very Life of Life. In its brief course He all the Verities and realities of your Existence: The Bliss of Growth, The Glory of Action, The Splendor of Beauty. For Yesterday is but a Dream, And To-morrow is only a Vision; To-day well-lived makes every Yesterday a dream of Happiness, And every To-morrow a Vision of Hope. Look well therefore to this Day! Such is the Salutation of the Dawn. (from the Sanskrit, of Unknown Authorship) The Gifts of Dawn The prophets of doom are many. Their voices sound the knell of destruction. Throughout long centuries ravaged by strife and conflicting passions, they have presaged the extinction of hu- manity. Since the beginning of his existence, man has been the un- willing victim of nature's forces, forever battling the capricious elements which seek to dominate and destroy him. hHe has strug- gled against oppressive environments, and fought his fellow man in a ceaseless search for power and immortality, seeking to quench the springs of ambition that flow in his soul. The greatest duel, however, has been between man and the forces within himself. He has perpetually sought to rule over his will, to be master of his fate and author of his destiny. These struggles are the essence of man, they are the signs of ruin to the prophets of disaster. Humanity, however, has repudiated these false seers, for It has emerged triumphant from the battlefield of life's eternal wars. The symbol of man's struggles and his ultimate victory is the morning Dawn. The rising sun brings with it warmth, light, and an end to the darkness of the night; but it also carries within its shimmering rays a message to mankind — the twin concepts of creation and eternity. Each day there Is a new Dawn, a phenome- non of nature, which, paradoxically, is as old as the world itself, and which will continue to exist until the end of that universe. Man, too, represents this concept. Humanity has faced the same chal- lenges and fought the same battles since the beginning of time. The battles against nature, fellow man, and himself have never ceased nor failed to occupy men's thoughts or direct their actions. Yet, with each new generation there arise new challenges to test man's ingenuity and nnoral strength. The challenges of the space age, nuclear weapons, and technology are characteristic of a new era unknown to mankind one hundred years ago; and the way we meet and conquer these challenges today will influence the future of tomorrow. Aurora, the rosy-hued Dawn, signifies the end of darkness and the beginning of a new day — a new life. This renewal of light each day is the promise of Dawn and causes "hope to spring eternal in the human breast." It is this hope, this faith, this gift of Dawn — G-d's creation — that is man's salvation. That and man's indomitable will to survive are why humanity exists today, despite the obstacles and struggles that seek to vanquish It. What is true of all mankind is, perhaps, even more true of the Jew. h^e has had to struggle against the Intolerance of man and the persecution of nations. He has witnessed the enslavement, the exile, and the genocide of his people; but, because of his deep and imperishable belief in G-d and hlis Torah, he has emerged triumphant, with dignity and greatness. Judaism, too, embraces the concepts of birth and eternity. With each generation our ancient religion is imbued with new life — in a sense, given a new Dawn. Yet, the original spirit and meaning of Judaism remains to guide us through future decades. Love of G-d and man is the heritage of the Jewish people. It is a heritage that we the graduates of 1962 are proud to bear as we join our people and all mankind in the endless struggles of Life. FELICE HAMADA whose hair TO HIM we helped turn gray from the administration Dear Graduates: I am pleased to extend my warmest greetings to the first graduating class of the Yeshiva University High School for Girls of Manhattan. Yours will always be the rare distinction of being the pioneers that will serve as an inspiration for all future students. The progress you have shown, both intellectually and spiritually, is a tribute to your ability. I hope that in your future endeavors you will continue to be a source of pride and inspiration to your families and that the ideals you received at the High School for Girls will enable you to fulfill your noble roles as "mothers in Israel" and sources of leadership in the Jewish community. SAMUEL BELKIN President, Yeshiva University Dear Graduates: On this joyous occasion in your lives, when you have reached an important mile- stone in your preparation for the fullness of the days to come, I am happy to greet you and to wish you well. You have completed successfully the course of studies prescribed in the English and Hebrew departments in our High School — some with distinction — all with credit to yourselves, your parents, and to our great institution. During the most formative years of your lives, you have actively participated in the harmonious blending and fusion of Jewish lore and secular learning. Whether you choose as your life's work some phase of human knowledge and dedicate yourselves to study and teaching, or give your energies to the fields of daily human needs, or devote yourselves to the realm of the spirit, remember the philosophy and the way of life that you have been taught here. Although the problems that you, as Jews, must face in this confused world are not always clear, you must, each and all of you, cling to those elements of our cultural past that have made us great as a people. You, graduates of Yeshiva University High School for Girls (Manhattan) have had an education different from that of the rest of the Jewish youth in this country. You ha\e had an opportunity to learn the value and significance of intense Jewish study, and to gain a deeper insight into a truer understanding of the Jewish consciousness and soul. With this great common bond, you are strengthened to withstand the material influences of the time, and are less prone to fall prey to the disintegrating forces which are threatening to sweep away everything that is dear and precious in life. Strengthen that bond; unite, assert yourselves and your influence in the lives of our youth, so that by your example you may pro\e that these }-cars in Yeshi\'a University High School ha\-e not been in vain, and that the instruction and the inspiration you receive here shall be a blessing to you and to those who are to be influenced by you.

As pace setters for a student body which will number over 350 next term, you have had a tremendous responsibility and, by and large, acquitted yourselves with distinction. I recall very vividly our first school term a little less than three years ago. As the oldest class, a role which was yours until now, it was your task to provide the necessary leadership for the many facets which make up student government. This year book, the many successful G.O. affairs, and the traditions which you have handed over to the lower class students attest to your success. Scholastically, it has been the aim of the Yeshiva to provide you with a balanced program of traditional religious subjects and varied general studies. The main objective of the Yeshiva has been to graduate a modern Jewish woman, who is endowed with a deep understanding of the prime ethical and practical values of our ancient tradition, but yet is aware of the need to adjust to contemporary living. While in a heterogeneous group like yourselves, scholastic achievement and moral influences may vary, it is our hope that the majority of you will remember the vitality of our cultural heritage, and that many of the "abstractions" discussed in your classes actually can be applied to everyday experiences. In this sense you will attest to the need for religious secondary education of girls and the timely action of Yeshiva University in expanding its educa- tional program for women. I have confidence in your integrity and good sense and wish you well in all your future undertakings.

Man, the creature of reason, is also a creature of insanity. Cap- able of the noblest emotions, he has often committed the most despicable of deeds. These aberrations of character are due to the basic conflicts inherent in all men. Man's greatest war — the war for survival against the de- structive elements of nature — began with his creation and can end only in his triumph or his destruction . . . Man Ap;ainst Nature Stranded, a small boat is left forlorn in the center of an endless, raging, storming sea. Hopelessness and desolation sur- round the ill-fated vessel. Yet, the boat moves on. Not by leaps and bounds, but it moves. Why? Why should it atttempt to reach its destination and safety? Because inside the ship there is a man with will-power, striving for survival and his life. Has it not always been this way — man against nature? From the prehistoric days of primitive man to our present advanced civilization, every conquest of a human being over the natural elements is turning one leaf in the book of man. Throughout the centuries famine, drought, pestilence, flood, bitter cold, and burning heat have all played their part in this ceaseless war, this fight to the finish. Man has been victorious and man has met defeat, but, in both conquest and frustration, he has been strengthened. Thus nature, by seeking to assert its dominance over man, has succeeeded in forging a stronger being, in imbuing into his sometime decadent soul a new purpose, a higher ideal. In- stead of destroying the human race, nature has welded a unity among men engaged in battling a common enemy. Man's conflict with nature is a strange one. It is a para- doxical war whose aim is destruction, but whose achievements are progress and a nobler human being. EVELYN CAPPELL 36 . . . Man's war against nature is one of the most serious aspects of his existence. Quite often, however, the humorous side of this battle comes to the fore . . . Ch amp I often wonder why people smirk when I say that "Batter up" suggests baking to me instead of base- ball. The fascinating world of sports is completely passing me by. But please don't assume I'm totally lost. Oh, no, I proudly held the title of hopscotch champ for four consecutive years. I like sports; sports just don't like me. I've enthu- siastically attempted every one at one time or another .... the world has yet to recover. I attribute my crashing failure to the fact that I am a "southpaw." In my first baseball game (and quite definitely my last) I hit what I like to think was a run home (or whatever they call it). The umpires are still debating the matter, for, you see, when taught the game, I was simply told to run around the bases. No one cared to tell me in which direction, and, being a lefty, my natural inclination was to run first to third base, then to second, first, and finally "home." Grinning triumphantly, I skipped to "home base" just in time to hear the manager of the opposing team exchange a few choice words with the umpire. The ump (who just happened to be my father) re- torted that since I had run all the way around the bases, no matter how, it was still a home run. My team heartily agreed. "No fair. It's against the rules, anyway. Who ever heard of running around the bases backwards.'" was the enraged answer. This, of course, set off what could easily have been mistaken from a distance as Custer's last stand. I shyly laid my bat on the plate — not knowing that one should let go of it, I had clutched it tightly as I ran around the bases — and quietly sneaked back to my hopscotch. But did this humiliating defeat dampen my fiery drive.' Did I let myself become convinced that I was totally hopeless.' Did I lack confidence? Did I lose hope .' Yes. As the world outside transformed into a hysterical mob, driven by a blazing, passionate hunger for Olympics and "World Series games, I contentedly crawled into a quiet seclusion of my own and read my way through baseball seasons, football seasons, basketball seasons, and snowball seasons. A few years later, however, I reluctantly agreed to go bowling with a few friends. I'll never forget — although heaven knows, I've tried — my first game. What stands out most in my mind is the complete silence that overshadowed the entire area. Balls stopped rolling. People stopped talking. A group of men with cigars drooping from their mouths folded their arms and chuckled inwardly. Then there was silence .... With long strides I raced, ball in hand, to the mark and hurled the heavy sphere. Hesitantly it crawled half-way down the alley in a zig-zag manner, then stopped for a moment, and rolled gently back. Someone giggled. Sheepishly, I extended a limp hand, grasped the ball, and prepared for another try. "This time it must be stronger, more powerful," I told myself. And strong it was, indeed. So strong, in fact, that the ball tore fiercely down the alley, made a sharp right turn, skipped across the gutter, and knocked down three pins in the next alley. I muttered a healthy Irish curse, and then told myself that I was an outstanding failure. "Why," I sputtered, 'I can't even develop a good case of ath- lete's foot!" But never fear, dear reader, I'm not that easily discouraged. As a matter of fact, I'm thinking of taking up the fine art of fencing. En garde ! ! ! ! ! CHARLOTE SILVERMAN 37 . . . The greatest mover of men and, yet, their greatest curse is the perpetual lust for power and grandeur. To attain this end man comes in conflict with fellow man and ruthlessly seeks to destroy the only other being who shares his burdens and fate. . . 38 A Losing Game Death, hate, pain, and destruction — these are the gifts of war. Broken homes, broken hearts, and broken bodies — these, also, are the gifts of battle. Youth, in all its innocence and beauty, is all too often the sacrificial lamb of- fered on the bloodstained altar of the battlefield. Young bodies, once over- flowing with violent passions' and fiery emotion, now merely empty shells — forever stilled, forever devoid of all feeling, all caring, all life. Luscious meadows lying peacefully under a gentle, caressing sun, are slowly watered by the blood of dying soldiers, too young to die, yet too near death to live. Mighty cities, stretching skyward to the heavens, bespeak man's power and glory; yet the heavens answer not, for the foundations quake and rot under the onslaught of man's insanity and shame. The pictures of war are many, her victims even more; but the eyes are too blinded with tears to see, and the heart too laden with grief to feel. So, the horrors of slaughter continue throughout the inexorable march of time and history; and though poppies may still grow in Flanders Field, so does hate in the souls of men. War is a game, and all can play, for death has no favorites. What is the world's greatest irony.' It is this: that the ideals of democracy achieve their greatest heights in times of mortal combat — for all are equal then. Who will say "nay" to the Negro when he marches to his death? Who will say "hold" to the Oriental when he stops a bullet with his final breath? Yet, it is strange to contemplate that at this time of supreme brotherhood there is hate, at this time of extreme self-sacrifice there is murder and violence. War is a contradiction, and war is a game. The stakes are high — your soul, your life — and the dice are loaded. There can be no winner, but one — the eternal, the ever-patient, ever-waiting Angel of Death. Whatever you throw, you lose — it's a losing game. Why, then, do so many play? FELICE HAMADA . . . Man's infinite striving towards ivealth and fame has often been a source of amusement and gentle mockery. The following essay sati- rizes this comical side of man' s boundless ambition . . . Why I Like Ballet Isn't it marvelous to flutter around like a graceful bird with feathers of frothy pink tulle in a ballet school in Scarsdale! Reginald Van Buren is here, and Priscilla Van Courtlandt and ... oh! I'd simply die if I wasn't a student at the Rayow School of Ballet. Why, every cultured young man and lady in Scarsdale learns grace in movement on Monday morning. Isn't it delightful to awaken and be whisked away by Jarvis in a shiny black limousine! I gaze through the windows at the common peo- ple riding bicycles or shooting marbles on the sidewalk. Don't they know Monday morning is ballet-time for any well-bred Scarsdale resi- dent 1 Mother is so smart! She knows exactly what's best for me. Why, as soon as she heard Priscilla was registered at Rayow's, she registered me, too. Daddy isn't as smart as mother. He com- plains every so often about the ten-dollars-an- hour that my ballet instruction costs. He should realize how important the Rayow school is. I think I'm pretty smart, though. I can plainly see all the advantages of going to the Rayow School of Ballet. How many other four-year- olds know that! RHODA MILLER Can One Compare? What is the fairer, the eve or the dawn, The stars or the sun of a man's life? The deep, restful sleep or the fresh glorious reawakening, The hush and mystery of darkness or the beauty and joy of life? How can one con/pare thee! Is it not as a blooming rose and a wilted floiver, And yet, as a tiny bird and an opened blossom Bursting with the fulness of life; And who can say which is the lovelier? The fiery wings of youth, longing to soar higher and higher, Proud and strong; burning with the desire to live, to love, So tender and yet so cruel With the fierce indifferent heart of youth .... Indifferent to the wisdom and gentleness that may be learned only through living and understanding; Careless to the older, humbled eagle flying ahead in the sky; Desire lost, but Wisdom gained. YAEL SIDON 39 The lights of New York City are the punctuation marks of life. Life is reflected in the darkness of the East River, as diamonds sparkling on the blackness of a velvet background. One light that should be scintillating is omi- nously dark. This, the extinguishing of the beacon of my life, is the cause of my being here on the parapet of the bridge. They say as you stand on the brink, it's dangerous to reflect. Yet, as one reaches the end of life, it is only hu- man to contemplate the mistake that can lead a man to take his own life. I cannot be accused of cowardice, and of the inability to face reality. My sui- cide will be an act of courage. I can- not be complimented for self-martyr- dom or hari-kari, for it is not on princi- ple that I die. My death will be an atonement, a punishment for lack of principle. I shall even admit to myself that it will be a self-decreed death- sentence for crimes against humanity. Why had I not revolted? One extra vote, my vote, would have insured the continuation of the flame of hope, the steady beacon among the flickering lights, die endless glass-towered sym- bol of international order and brother- hood among men. My personal acquie- scence could have kept kindled that light of hope and peace. Now it is too late for anything but prayer in the face of death and the end of civilization. Now the lights of the United Nations are no longer reflected in the mirror of the river. "Move along, it's late, later than you think." The voice of a policeman, urging me on. How right he is! It's later than I thought, much too late. My chance is gone. Humanity, it's later than you think, for your chance is gone, too! They say as you stand on the brink, it's dangerous to reflect. HELENE LIPSTADT The Quest The sky is growing dark as if in a scowl, But it is not the sky growing dark. The rain is falling in big ivet drops, But it is not the rain that is falling. Thunder is breaking out in loud cracks. But it is not thunder I hear. The earth is bleeding, But it is not the earth that bleeds. My face is growing dark, for I am angry and hurt. My tears are falling, I cannot control their flow. My spirit is lashed by a tide of sorrow. My soul is broken by the hollowness of failure. I lift my head although I wish to cry. I take my broken soul and strive to mend the pieces. I face the world with tiew conviction and strength. I raise my eyes to heaven and seek. The sun shines as if to smile after the rain. The earth is drying and being enriched again, serene. The rain has moistened the leaves and disappeared. EVELYN BERGER In Solitude Often when I sit in solitude, Weighted with yesterday's sorrows. Dreaming of glories to be, Lost in the wave of time — my life — Time see?ns to stop. The past is gone, pushing back Each passing second, behind; The future lies beyond my thoughts. 'Tis ahead of me — a moment away— But where am I? What am I today in time? I am yesterday's hopes And tofnorrow's memories. Now is never. There is no present. I am the past and the future. JOSEPHINE SEBROW 41 . . . The birth of a Jewish child brings with it great joy and happiness, but, perhaps, more than i?i any other religion, it entails many responsibilities and obligations. The holiness of birth and childhood is always evident in the feivish home . . . Birth of a Jew The three stood together, excited and full of anxiety. The older man and his wife gazed thoughtfully at their son who was about to become a father. As the mother looked lovingly at her own fiirst-born, she remembered what his birth had meant to her and to her husband. She thought of the Brit Mila, which gave her son his right- ful heritage, a place among the sons of Israel. Being the first-born, he had also had a Pidyon Ha Ben, the cere- mony wherein the eldest son is re- deemed. She pictured him as he stood at his father's side in the synagogue, proudly wearing a new Talis. She remembered the expression of awe and wonderment as his small, upturned face gazed at the' Ner Tamid, the Eternal Light, glowing softly in the House of the Lord. She looked then at her husband and remembered his joy upon hearing his son first recite the "Modeh Ani." They had laughed together at his futile at- tempts at pronouncing the words of this ancient blessing. Yes, they had been proud of their Jewish child. The father also reflected upon his son's past. He thought of the many unaswerable questions that his son had asked: "Where is G-d?" ""How do we know that He really is the right G-d.'*" Those questions had but one answer — faith; and seeing the strong, assured faith of the father had given faith and courage to the son. The father now recalled his son's Bar-Mitzvah. He though of being called to the Torah to utter the "Baruch Shep- tarani" — "Blessed is G-d who relieveth me from this responsibility" — and re- membered how he had wished that he could forever bear the punishment of his son's sins, and thereby keep him free from sorrow. Both parents had stood by their son at his wedding, and had given him to a girl who would grow with him and care for him, as they had for so many years. Now this girl was giving their son life, and a reason for living. She was bearing him a child to love, to admonish, and to raise as a true Jew, a Torah Jew, to carry on the heritage of his father. JACQUELINE FRIEDMAN 42 . . . Music, in the past, played an important part in the Jeivish religion — from the chants of the Levites in the Temple, to the songs of Zion sung in exile. Modern Israeli music, which draws its inspiration from the past, also has a place in the cultural heritage of our people . . . M 11 s i c T h r o u gh T h e Ages Music is more than a mere abstract collection of notes, and a song is more than a composite o£ words. Music and song need environment and background in order to possess feeling, passion, and meaning. Dedication, faith, and suffering have exerted povv'erful influence upon the songs of the Jewish people. Their widely varied backgrounds, the thousands of years spent wandering, homeless in lands of exile, have endowed the Jew- ish people with a liturgical and folk music of unique character. The associa- tions, memories, and aspirations of the Jews as an entity have combined to lend an emotional significance to their culture and to their song. Synagogue music has brought to the pulpit the Psalms of David, the_ Shabbat prayers, and the Holy Day services. The modern compositions of Isadore Freed and Leonard Bernstein, deeply devout and introspective, are evocative of a faith simple in its dignity, glowing with colorful warmth. Ernest Bloch, the most monumental figure in contemporary Jewish music, provided musical settings for prayers. His compositions have aroused the praise of music critics throughout the world, with some even favorably comparing him to Beethoven. In his music one can feel the cries and hopes of generations of our people. The music of modern Israel, harsh and at the same time sweet, symbolic of the Sabras — the strong, proud-born Israelis — brings to life the history of recent years, the struggle to renew the land. These songs are simple — they praise G-d for the earth, and laud the fruits of the earth and the scent of roses growing in a desert. They are also fierce, surrounded by a halo of heroism, fired by the recollection of the fight for freedom. Music and song have played decisive roles in the national awakening of many peoples. It is to be hoped that Jewish songs will always be remembered and will serve to do the same for young Jews everywhere, to strengthen their identity and further a pride in their cultural and spiritual heritage. HELENE WEILGUS 43 . . . The Jewish religion is immortal — it was the first and will be the last. It has its foundations in love and nobility; as long as it exists, so will humanity . . . Eternity Eternity, though an incomprehens- ible concept for any mortal, is one of the basic tenets of the Jewish faith. The foundations of Judaism — G-d, the Torah, and the Jewish Nation — are rooted in this concept. G-d — the Eternal One — keeps an un- ceasing vigil over the world and a time- less supervision over the actions and deeds of each of His creations. One of the basic principles of Judaism is our belief in the immortality of G-d. He is past, present, and future, embodied in One Being. The Torah is also everlasting — not as an intangible and pervading spirit, but a concrete and practical guide to men's lives upon this earth. Even during the most trying periods of Jewish his- tory, the Or Torah — the Eternal Light of learning — brightened at least one crevice in this great earth, preserving the flickering flame until the time when it would once again become a blazing torch filling the globe with its death- less glow. It is the Eternal Light pre- served in synagogues around the world that today symbolizes the flame of Torah; and it is the Jewish devotion to learning that preserves this light for a future when all mankind will shine in its radiance. The Jewish Nation— Am Yisrael — has in its indestructibility defied the laws of nature and of men. Beginning with Abraham — who, the Midrash tells us, defied the accepted law by escap- ing death in Nimrod's fiery pit — the Jewish Nation has survived seemingly insurmountable threats lashing it against the shores of history. Through- out tumultuous centuries of persecution and martyrdom — from Egyptian slav- ery, Greek defilation, Roman domina- tion, and Persian hatred to the atroci- ties of the Hitlerian hordes — by the grace of G-d and by its own stubborn and deep faith, the Jewish Nation has survived. It is this infinity of G-d, of the Torah, and of the Jewish Nation that culminates in the eternity of the human soul. This life, say our Sages, is but a corridor through which one prepares to enter the magnificent kingdom of the hereafter, the eternal resting place for every human soul. Thus does eternity affect the daily actions of Jews today, just as it has affected the actions of our fathers and of those whose ages have long passed.
